I am using the PnP commands to add new terms to an existing group, but I am not sure how to set 'other label' fields to add aliases to the term.

I am trying to add a financial accountplan with account and description as the alias/other label.

ie. termname "7215" otherlabel "Internet"

This is the command i use:

New-PnPTerm -Name "7230" -TermSet "Kreditorer" -TermGroup "Kreditorer" -LCID "1033"

Any idea how to set the other labels value?

You need to use the CreateLabel method to add other labels.

Its not directly available via PnP, so you need to write some more commands to add these labels.

The code necessary for that is as below:

$context = Get-PnPContext
$term = New-PnPTerm -Name "7230" -TermSet "Kreditorer" -TermGroup "Kreditorer" -LCID "1033"
$createLabel1 = $term.CreateLabel("account",1033,$false)
$createLabel2 = $term.CreateLabel("description",1033,$false)

References - Term.CreateLabel method
